The spark for the idea of Way for Life came about after three like-minded classmates were exposed and eventually astonished by the massive discrepancy that existed between an underprivileged student who studied in a Government school and a student in a Private school. The obvious financial imbalance that both of the students came from, coupled with the lack (almost an absolute absence) of even the most necessary infrastructure in the Government schools greatly affected the comfort and naivety of our founders. This inequality, they resolved, was one that required immediate correction. Way for Life started off in 2017 with 3 members and the support of a few local retailers in Bangalore. Witnessing a steady growth of support and participation from onlookers soon after the very 1st event instilled in the members then not only the confidence to proceed with their actions, but also a conviction that what they were putting their collective efforts into would soon blossom into fruition.
To appease the obvious, seemingly unending depreciation which our Indian education system is a perpetrator of – which leaves with it an innumerable number of destitute, student victims who lack the resources and knowledge of a way to move forward – Way for Life’s main motives are centralised towards correcting this flaw in the system. By instilling a greater efficiency in the transference and exchange of knowledge and improving the infrastructure in Government schools, Way for Life is confident that these small steps will make student-hood a ‘learning experience’ and not simply a ‘test’ of one’s memory. The activities have not been restricted to this field alone in the 3 years since our inception. With our functioning in 7 cities across India, our 6000+ volunteer body is constantly working on ways to improve the constantly changing political, social, environmental scenarios in our country, by directing our efforts towards issues and communities which are regularly neglected.
